The Nanny Diaries by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus

Nanny has been through the routine of nannying several times. When she meets Mrs. X, it first appears that she's slightly different than the women Nanny's worked for before. All too soon, she learns that Mrs. X is different all right, she's worse! Nanny wants her life back, but how can she leave Grayer, the young child she's come to love?

The first few chapters of this book confused the heck out of me. I kept searching for the characters' names, but it turns out that that Nanny is really just Nanny, and Mrs. X is really Mrs. X. Oh, and you can't forget Harvard Hottie. The name's irked me throughout the entire book, and I found myself making up name's for them just to keep myself placated.

However, other than that, I really enjoyed The Nanny Diaries! Nanny's character is a lot of fun. She knows that it's a continuous cycle and she needs to get out, but how can she possibly leave such a cute kid? I was rooting for her and Harvard Hottie the entire time. And Mrs. X is the perfect villain. Whenever I pictured her, I thought of Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmations. Remember her?

After reading the book, I had to watch the movie, so be looking for a review of that soon!
